Physics of the Future: How Science Will Shape Human Destiny and Our Daily Lives by the Year 2100is a 2011 book by theoretical physicist Michio Kaku, author ofHyperspaceandPhysics of the Impossible. In it Kaku speculates about possible future technological development over the next 100 years. He interviews notable scientists about their fields of research and lays out his vision of coming developments in medicine, computing, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, and energy production. The book was on the New York Times Bestseller List for five weeks.
Kaku writes how he hopes his predictions for 2100 will be as successful as science fiction writer Jules Verne's 1863 novelParis in the Twentieth Century. Kaku contrasts Verne's foresight against U.S. Postmaster General John Wanamaker, who in 1893 predicted that mail would still be delivered by stagecoach and horseback in 100 years' time, and IBM chairman Thomas J. Watson, who in 1943 is alleged to have said "I think there is a world market for maybe five computers." Kaku points to this long history of failed predictions against progress to underscore his notion "that it is very dangerous to bet against the future".
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth is a 2010 bestselling children's fiction book by American author and cartoonist Jeff Kinney and is the fifth book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. The Ugly Truth sold 548,000 copies in its initial week of publication, edging out Decision Points, which sold 437,000 copies.
Kinney initially struggled with the decision of whether Greg would be a non-aging "cartoon character" or a literary character that would age and go through puberty, deciding to make puberty one of the book's themes. Kinney also debated over whether to end the series with five books, eventually deciding to continue the series.
This story begins with Greg explaining that since he and his best friend Rowley have had a big fight in the previous book, their friendship has been "history". Susan Heffley, Greg's mother, announces that she will be going back to college for a few months in order to stimulate her mind. As a result, the Heffley men must take care of themselves, and most stability falls apart. Food is often ruined, and since Susan usually does the chores around the house, Greg is short of clean clothes to wear. With Susan in college, Greg's father, Frank, gives Greg the responsibility of waking himself up in the morning. Greg tries a wind-up alarm clock, which he believes will be more effective than his last one, and puts it under his bed so that he has to get out of bed to find it. But with the clock ticking loudly under the bed, he feels like he is on top of a bomb and is therefore unable to sleep. As a result, Greg accidentally activates the school fire alarm in his sleep-deprived state, causing the entire school to evacuate. The fire department is called, but no fire is found. Everyone goes back in, and the principal tells them that whoever pulled the alarm will be suspended and should turn themselves in. Greg decides to keep a low profile about the culprit and does not get caught, but a rumor goes around that the fire alarm squirts an invisible liquid when the handle is pulled, which the teachers could detect with a special wand. Many dismiss this rumor as a trick for the teachers to see who goes to wash their hands first. As a result, no one goes to wash their hands, and since it is the middle of flu season, the school closes early. Since Susan is studying, Greg has to call Frank from work to pick him up, which Frank is not happy about.

Yahtzee is a dice game made by Milton Bradley (now owned by Hasbro), which was first marketed as Yatzie by the National Association Service of Toledo, Ohio, in the early 1940s. Yatzie was included in a game set called LUCK - 15 Grand Dice Games. It was marketed under the name of Yahtzee by game entrepreneur Edwin S. Lowe in 1956. Lowe is also responsible for introducing Bingo to the U.S. market. The game is a development of earlier dice games such as Poker Dice, Yacht and Generala. It is also similar to Yatzy, which is popular in Scandinavia.
The objective of the game is to score points by rolling five dice to make certain combinations. The dice can be rolled up to three times in a turn to try to make various scoring combinations and dice must remain in the box. A game consists of thirteen rounds. After each round the player chooses which scoring category is to be used for that round. Once a category has been used in the game, it cannot be used again. The scoring categories have varying point values, some of which are fixed values and others for which the score depends on the value of the dice. A Yahtzee is five-of-a-kind and scores 50 points, the highest of any category. The winner is the player who scores the most points.
Jenga is a game of physical skill created by British board game designer and author Leslie Scott and marketed by Hasbro. Players take turns removing one block at a time from a tower constructed of 54 blocks. Each block removed is then placed on top of the tower, creating a progressively more unstable structure.
Jenga is played with 54 wooden blocks. Each block is three times as long as it is wide, and one fifth as thick as its length – 1.5 cm × 2.5 cm × 7.5 cm (0.59 in × 0.98 in × 2.95 in). Blocks have small, random variations from these dimensions so as to create imperfections in the stacking process and make the game more challenging. To begin the game, the blocks are stacked into a solid rectangular tower of 18 layers, with three blocks per layer. The blocks within each layer are oriented in the same direction, with their long sides touching, and are perpendicular to the ones in the layer immediately below. A plastic tray provided with the game can be used to assist in setup.
